Captured by a giant!
The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, the Bonecruncher, or any of the other giants - rather than the BFG - she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that they are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

What do these five have in common? Why, they're the lickiest children in the entire world: they've each won a chance to enter Willy Wonka's famous, mysterious chocolate factory.
What happens when the big doors swing open to reveal Mr. Wonka's secrets? What happens when they come upon the tiny factory workers who sing in rhyme? What happens when, one by one, the children disobey Mr. Wonka's orders? On Roald Dahl's most popular story for children, the nasty are punished and the good are deliciously, sumptuously rewarded.
Includes an interview with Roald Dahl
born in 1916 in Wales, spent his childhood in England and later worked in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. After a war injury, he moved to Washington D.C., and there he began to write. His first short story was published by
The Saturday Evening Post
, and so began a long and distinguished career.
Roald Dahl became, quite simply, one of the best-loved children's book authors on all time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity and that of his many books -

Fantastic Mr. Fox
Every evening as soon as it got dark, Mr. Fox would say yo Mrs. Fox, "Well, my darling, what shall it be this time? A plump chicken from Boggis? A duck or a goose from Bunce? Or a nice turkey from Bean?" And when Mrs. Fox had told him what she wanted, Mr. Fox would creep down into the valley in the darkness of the night and help himself.
Boggis and Bunce and Bean knew very well what was going on, and it made them wild with rage. They were not men who liked to give anything away. Less still did they like anything to be stolen from them. So every noght each of them would take his shotgun and hide on his own farm, hoping to catch the robber.
But Mr. Fox was too clever for them.
